Last Words: the story in the words of director Jonathan Nossiter

Filmed mostly in Italy, between the Archaeological Park of Paestum and underground Bologna, Last Words prophetically imagine the end of humanity when in 2086, in the aftermath of the great floods, the planet we know no longer exists and the last man on earth discovers cinema, which is entrusted with the memory of humanity. “In the world of 2086, Europe is a desert. There is no more nature. Only cans of powdered food for the last survivors. There is no more culture. Except for a few fragments of cinema under the rubble of what remains of Bologna. And the ancient temples in Athens. No more sociability, not even the memory of a handshake. A world without hope? No! Thanks to the magical resources of the human imagination. Last Words it is a film that confronts the destructive power of ecological catastrophes without losing the courage of tenderness and the joy of being together to tell us stories. Urgent. Like the last man on Earth in 2086: a young African, the last African. Played by non-actor Kalipha Touray, a Gambian refugee who at sixteen has already witnessed the end of the world in real life. Along with the legendary actor Nick Nolte – who plays a director from another era – will rediscover cinema in the film. And therefore the meaning of life: the pleasure of being together (after a long period of isolation), the love of culture (after years of barbarism), of beauty (after so much horror). Above all, they rediscover the importance of keeping their memory alive. Because, at the end of the world, everything matters.”
